I was trying to figure out when the closing credits were changed to white. I have a copy of the second ABC tv broadcast from 1985, (white credits) but not the 1983 network debut. (I doubt there is any differences there.) I don’t think the actual lettering ever changed.

Does the UK broadcast have the profanity dubbed over and Room 237 ghost covered in a creepy fog? That’s interesting that the credits were still blue! If you get the chance to do an A/B comparison with the DVD or Blu-Ray it could be enlightening.

The early Japanese LD I used to have had mild censorship of Room 237 ghost. There was once a clip on The Overlook Hotel site, but tumblr prudishly removed it.

All profanity intact, no ‘fogging’ in Room 237, tennis ball is yellow and opening Warner logo is same as the one you posted on previous page.
I only have the UK Blu-Ray of the 119 min. international cut to hand, so that’s not going to be of much help to me in doing a comparison. Although I’m fairly certain I have a DVD of the longer version buried somewhere. Just need to dig it out.
Is there anything I should be looking out for that might indicate if this version is in any way different/unique to all commonly available versions?
